Event Details

Few events thrill us like royal weddings. Both as public ceremonies and as personal milestones, these occasions feel like living fairy tales. In this illustrated lecture, historian Leslie Goddard explores the history of ten regal marriages, including those of Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and Prince William. Beyond their glamour, how do these occasions work to strengthen notions of national identity? How have royal couples negotiated the balance between a significant personal occasion and powerful national pressures?
